My practice incorporates image, language, embodiment and flexible structures. My primary media is painting, which references an underlying shamanic and phenomenological world vision. Drawing from a predominantly rural landscape, I question how this can be portrayed in context of historical and contemporary events, and personal knowledge. How does the layering of the imaginal and structural (language / symbol / meaning / action) occur within a primordial perception? How do human and non-human intelligences (animal / plant / energetic) coexist or clash in uncertain worlds? I use aesthetic and technical media to research this.
